Santiago, Chile—Differentiation through innovation is a way of life for Chile’s third-largest bank, Banco de Crédito e Inversiones (Bci). Emblazoned with bright, primary colors and surrounded by colorful 3D characters, their motto proclaims: “Somos diferentes” – “We’re different.” And so they are.
However, the differentiation is much deeper than a clever marketing scheme. Being different is clearly how Bci operates on a daily basis and that shows up in surprising corners.
We’re here at Bci’s Innovation offices in downtown Santiago, Chile to produce a set of video case studies on the successes that the bank has enjoyed while working with HP over the past 8 years. One of the great things about working in the services business is that our success as a vendor is really defined by the client’s success. So we have the privilege of supporting and promoting the successes that our clients achieve with ingenuity, innovation, and technology, every day.

I was reading the recent edition of HP Industry Edge Health and Life Sciences edition with great interest. On Page 10, you will see how key innovations from HP Labs have been applied in the Healthcare industry to improve overall patient experience at hospitals. As I read this article by Jaap Suermondt, Lab Director, Services and Solutions Research Lab, Director of Healthcare Research, HP Labs, I slowly began to digest the practical significance of these innovations. It lead me to visualize how a day in the life of a patient at a hospital could be thanks to these innovations.
As I was discussing my Fourth of July plans with a co-worker, she told me that she was going to attend the funeral of her uncle who had been an Alzheimer's patient. The conversation reminded me of Vinnie Mirchandani’s recent post on Wearable Devices in which one of the devices he highlights is specifically meant for Alzheimer's patients.
Having blogged about wearable devices and flexible displays both from my perspective and my future grandson's perspective, I read Vinnie's post with great interest. He has carefully assimilated a healthy -- yes, literally, healthy -- mix of wearables for monitoring everything from medical issues to child safety. The parties benefiting from these devices cover the spectrum from infants through senior citizens.
